QB Tajh Boyd

Clemson, Soph.

Last week: Idle.

Season (nine games): 195-of-318 passing for 2,674 yards, 25 TDs and five INTs; 89 rushes for 164 yards and four TDs.

The Tigers are out of the title hunt, cooling the talk of Boyd's candidacy, but he remains one worth watching. Clemson can claim their second ACC Atlantic Division crown in three years with a win at Wake Forest, though this could be the start of Boyd setting himself up for a 2012 Heisman run. The push is to have him become more of a dual threat, and we can expect offensive coordinator Chad Morris to try to begin Boyd's progression against the Deacons, who allowed 185 rushing yards in their last four games.

Next up: Saturday vs. Wake Forest
